    This Ludwig Masters edition of Langlais's Suite Mediévale will be adequate for anyone wanting to perform the piece. The savings of getting this edition compared to more expensive editions are probably worth it (I say "probably" because I haven't seen more expensive editions). Still, this isn't...

    the highest-quality edition, and it shows. It seems to be a scan of an earlier source, and the scans aren't always clean—details are lost (see the tuplet numbers on page 14), and beams and bar lines bleed into each other (page 17). This edition includes some but not copious fingerings. There is no preface or other index of information on Langlais or the piece in this edition. One thing I liked about this edition (apparently prepared for an English-speaking audience) is that it does not try to crowd the score with translations for all the terms on the score itself (e.g., "R(écit)" is not followed immediately by "Sw(ell)". Rather, the publisher has included an index of translations.
